TikTok account Problem Solved has shared a handy use for your leftover coffee.

"If you have some extra coffee, go ahead and freeze it," said the host of the tutorial.

This trick will let you enjoy delicious iced coffee, without diluting the flavor, as well as save you money.

A third follower said: "I love this I'm going to do it tomorrow."

Even non-coffee drinkers liked the idea.

One person said: "Don’t drink coffee but that’s smart."
